With FC Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi another year older next month, a high-profile former teammate of his has insisted the five-time Ballon d'Or winner still has four good years left in him.
The Argentine has been at the top of his game for more than a decade, and like all good things, his career will eventually come to an end.
Messi turns 32 years old late next month, but his ex-Blaugrana colleague Xavi Hernandez has insisted the forward still has a number of good years ahead of him.
"We always talk about the post-Messi era, but Leo has three or four good years left," he told Sport.
"At the top level, like now, because he looks after himself, he's incredibly professional, he's physically strong, a beast mentally.
"He's the No. 1 at everything."
Messi's current contract with Barcelona expires 2021, but he is likely to sign yet another extension in the near future.
